About

We are pleased to present Simulacra, the first solo show of Kayde Anobile at Tintype. The people in Anobile's pencil portraits, often in 19C attire, gaze out at us with an unnerving stare. Sometimes there is an ambiguity about their gender. A sense that they are hovering in time and space is accentuated by the surrounding darkness and the suggestion of burn marks. Doubles, doppelgängers, pairs and paradoxes are the basis of of Anobile's evolving exploration of simulacra and the uncanny: two portraits, seemingly identical, but if you look carefully they are not exactly the same. Yeti-like creatures mirroring themselves and each other, and a peep show that confounds expectations.
